Love it. Cody's been a fantastic fit next to Vanek. Was very close to getting a G and 1 or 2 As last night in the first alone (Vanek just failed to cash in on a couple prime chances, and Hodgson just barely had a point blank shot with a half empty net deflected wide off a defender's stick). His defensive play is...underwhelming, but offensively the kid has been money, and he does seem to be working hard at improving on his deficiencies. The effort has been noticeable in his skating and faceoff stats. I'm hopeful that the defensive game will come with time too. I'm sure no one would notice his issues there as much if we had a legitimate shutdown C that could take the tough match-ups and he and Ennis weren't just getting thrown into the fire in that regard, but our roster is what it is, and overall he's playing well.
